Manage automatic mounting/adding to fstab of new devices??

I was wondering if there was a package or a script somewhere that manages new usb connected devices such as a flash memory stick or a usb hard drive by adding a line for them in the fstab file, creating a folder for it and mounting it there?

I saw something like this on either Fedore Core 2 or Ubuntu I think, wondering if there was a similiar solution to this for Debian.
